The Complete History of Chocolate (1900 BCE – 2017)

Learn all about the complete history of chocolate, from its origins in Mesoamerica in 1900 BCE up until today. Also, if you’re a hardcore chocolate lover just like we are here at Geeks are Sexy, I can’t begin to recommend “Les Chocolats de Chloé” strongly enough!

If you can’t imagine life without chocolate, you’re lucky you weren’t born before the 16th century. Until then, chocolate only existed as a bitter, foamy drink in Mesoamerica. So how did we get from a bitter beverage to the chocolate bars of today? Deanna Pucciarelli traces the fascinating and often cruel history of chocolate.
